Odeh: Netanyahu’s clinging to power harms Arab citizens

Netanyahu is not trustworthy and has harmed the Arab community in Israel on numerous occasions, Joint List leader Ayman Odeh said in an exclusive meeting with The Jerusalem Post editorial staff.

Odeh asserted in the Monday meeting that it is time for Israel to treat Palestinian citizens as equals and as a national minority with “real democracy and real citizenship” and not dismissively as “Israeli-Arabs.”

One of the problems of the government’s behavior, he said, is that it has vacillated between the support by Moshe Kahlon’s Finance Ministry of financial plans for development and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s verbal attacks on Arabs.
